Memorandum : Rwanda President Paul Kagame controversial visit to the Netherlands

His Excellency Mark Rutte

Prime Minister

 

Brussels September 25, 2015

 

Your Excellency,

 

Please find attached the Memorandum on the visit of President Paul Kagame to the Netherlands.

 

We the undersigned political organisations, civil society organisations and human rights defenders are writing to you to express our grave concern about the visit of President Paul Kagame, President of the republic of Rwanda to The Netherlands, from 3rd to 6th October 2015. We strongly believe that a warm welcome to President Paul Kagame would be a mockery of the international justice system and would undermine the moral authority of The Netherlands in the world and the values it holds so dearly. He should be coming to The Hague to answer questions from the International Criminal Court and not to get a red carpet reception from the Dutch authorities.

RWANDA : EMPHATIC NO TO PRESIDENT KAGAME’S BID TO BECOME THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND

PRESS RELEASE N° 001/2015

 

RWANDA EMPHATIC NO TO PRESIDENT KAGAME’S BID TO BECOME THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND (PDF)

The political platform, composed of political organisations Amahoro PC, FDU-Inkingi; PDP- Imanzi; PS Imberakuri and Ihuriro Nyarwanda- Rwanda National Congress-RNC would like to condemn in the strongest terms possible President Kagame bid to become the supreme law of the land.

A cabinet meeting chaired by President Paul Kagame on the 9th of September 2015, appointed a 7 man commission of legal experts to assist the Parliament in the process of amending the constitution in order to lift the limitation of presidential terms. This is to allow President Kagame to stand again when his term ends in 2017.  This is again to show to any remaining doubters that the move to change the constitution is unstoppable and that President is determined to become King Paul of Rwanda[1].

RWANDA: THE LIFE OF SYLVAIN SIBOMANA FDU-INKINGI’ SG AT RISK OF SIGNIFICANT HARM AS GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS DISMISS MEDICAL ADVICE

Since 5th August 2015 Rwandan prison officials have refused Sylvain Sibomana, FDU-Inkingi Secretary General, to get access to food recommended by medical Doctors because of his health condition. Members of the family including his wife and children are devastated, fearing the worst could happen to him. The medical recommendation no 1003/08/2014 signed by a government recognised Doctor, was rejected by GASABO prison officials. Our Party FDU-Inkingi is very concerned that the suspension of appropriate food provision to Sylvain could be part of a strategy to get rid of Sylvain Sibomana slowly without firing a shot.  He is serving an 8 year jail sentence for daring to exercise his political rights in a Police State.
